Your paper dolls were fantastic! Well done. Can you listen to the story again and think about the paper dolls that you made. If you didn't make any you could do that today. In the story the girl names her dolls like names like "Jim with 2 noses and Jill with a bow." What names could you give your dolls and why?

I have registered all children on an online maths teaching program called Numbots. Numbots is from the same people who made Timestable Rockstars that is very popular with the older children in our school. I have sent a text with your childs username and password on to access the website. If you haven't received the text please email me at mcohen@birklandsschool.co.uk

Spread the happiness TV

Children may enjoy taking part in this each day. At school we love dough disco and this is a great way for children to develop their fine motor skills in preparation for writing. I have listed a simple playdough recipe below.


The recipe will still work without the Cream of tarter although the dough won't be as shiny or last as long.

Monday 23rd March

Good Morning Robins!

Can you have a look at these websites and let me know which one you think is best?!


This website gives parents lots of free simple and fun ideas to promote all areas of learning.


Online games - some tablet friendly, but others need Flash.


Twinkl are offering parents free access to learning resources. I might use links in the home learning, but you will have access to this for your own ideas and activities.

To access the free offer, you will need to visit www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and log in as a new to Twinkl member using your email address, set up a password and use the code: UKTWINKLHELPS


Videos, games and activities linked to their favourite characters.


YouTube video clips from Mr T does phonics which includes Geraldine the Giraffe. Please review Phase 2 & 3 Phonics sounds, digraphs and trigraph learned so far.


Alphablocks videos to support phonics.


A website that gives you information, flash cards and games for phonics. We’re currently working at Phase 3.


Practice addition facts and number bonds.

You can let me know which is best by sending me an email to mcohen@birklandsschool.co.uk

I'm looking forward to your emails!

Thursday 19th March

Good Morning everyone! It's true school is a lot quieter without you and not as fun!

Class 5 did work hard but definitely not as hard as you do!

Today I would like you to do some measuring like we have in class. I would like you to do some measuring using your hands or feet. Can you answer the following questions...

How many hands tall is an adult at your house?

How many feet long is a room at your house?

How many arms long is your sofa?

How many hands long is your bed?

Also a website that we use in phonics is now free to everyone! Its got some great games...


Wednesday 18th March

Good morning everyone, I hope you're all okay. School is going to be very quiet without you all! I'm going to teaching Class 5 today and I know they won't work as hard as you do!

Here is your job for today...

Can you write out the alphabet and find an object in your house for each letter?

Like this...

A - apple

B - book

C - carpet

D - Duplo brick

There will be extra points for objects that no one else has! Good Luck!

From Mr Cohen.
